I've fiddled around with this track long enough that I've run out of things to fiddle with. I have no choice but to unleash it on you, the cognoscenti of the Cafe.

The sound of the mighty SEM really compliments your style. It was also a nice touch with the distorsion/saturation on the vocals.

When it comes to song writing and arrangement I'd wish I was your doppelganger :hihi:

Cheers :tu:

I thought of the Devine electronic dance videos of the 80's. Devine was a doppelganger unto him/her self. Or could this be David Bowie's evil twin. !!!!!

This is very cool. Love the beat/bass. It sounds like something quirky yet a bit sinister.
Vocal effects are great. Fastlanephil hit on it with the Bowie's evil twin comparison.
The Arturia SEM is a great sounding synth. I got the iPad version and it's sounds so good.
Well done!

Thank you. I also like your moniker Plug Hugger. It's not easy finding a name that hasn't already been used on the interwebs. :)

Thanks for your encouraging feedback. :)

Note the SEM was a minor player on this track only doing some rhythmic beeping from 3:10-3:33. All leads were Icarus. Monark was used for bass. The pads were a mixture of Icarus, M-Tron Pro, and Diva.

My bad :clown:

Sooo...What I meant was that the SEM like (at least to my ears) main synth really compliments your style.

I think you are taking about this synth which kicks at 0:28. I confirmed it's a custom Icarus patch. Here it is in isolation. You can't hear it well in the mix.

Thanks for noticing. I should probably reuse it in the future. :)

Good track as expected and a nice mix with a "warm" sound.
Has some 80th vibe or something I would see in this area. Maybe a bit inspired by Camouflage or some similar artists.
